Java is one of the best programming language created ever, and I am not saying this, because I am a passionate Java developer, but Java has proved it in last 20 years. Two decades is a big time for any Programming language, and Java has gained strength every passing day. Though there are times, when Java development slows down, but Java has responded well. Earlier with ground breaking changes in form of Enum, Generics, and Autoboxing in Java 5, performance improvement with Java 6, and Google’s choice of language for Android apps development, keeps Java as front line programming language. Many graduate often ask me, which is the best programming language, which language should we learn, shall I learn Java etc. Well, it depends upon definition of your best programming language, if it’s popularity then obviously Java outscore every one, even C, which is there for almost 50 years. If it in terms of Job opportunities, again Java outscore every one.
You can get tons of Jobs opportunity by learning Java programming language, you can develop core Java based server side application, J2EE web and enterprise applications, and can even go for Android based mobile application development. So if you are not coming from C and C++ background, and want to learn your first programming language, I will suggest to choose Java. In this article, I will share my list of reason, and Why you should learn Java programming and Why I think Java is best programming language created ever.
Java is used to build applications and platforms for a number of devices, including computers, laptops, gaming consoles, Blu-ray players, car navigation systems, medical monitoring devices, parking meters, lottery terminals and smartphones. It is also a key language for networking, particularly for data centers that store and transfer Web-based data.
Java is also used to create miniature, dynamic programs that run alongside or are embedded within Web pages. These programs are called applets and can be used to display maps, weather, games or other interactive widgets or tools on a Web page.And so on…
